The experienceof shame throughout life produces armouring of the body, which makes it difficult for the Self to be expressed. This article aims to understand the way grounding, shame and vulnerability are related and the implications in terms of relationships, personal and social aspects. The marks left by these experiences are registered on the body and influ-ence expression, spontaneity and vitality of the organism. In order to focus on energetic blocks, especially those of the oral and cervical segments, a group of exercises is described as a treatment possibility in developing body awareness, strengthening grounding as a means to support feelings of vulnerability often present in contexts of shame and humiliation. Im-agetic resources in the form of photographic image as well as poetry will be used with the intention of favoring a connection with the body, feelings and perceptions. The term Sufficient-body will be used to counteract the conditioned ideas of inferiority, inadequacy and incompetence. Under this perspective one understands that each body is fully potent to face the ex-periences of their lives.

Keywords: Grounding, Shame, Vulnerability, Sufficient-body
